im trying to write something in python, but the command prompt doesnt recognize "python" to be a vaild command, which i need it to. i know what i have to do to make it work, which is add a line of code to the autoexec.bat file. but i dont know where this file is located. any help?
autoexec.bat is a DOS file on the root directory of the disk. C:\\> It's probably not there if you're running 2000 or XP. DOS won't accept anything as a "command" unless the file has an .exe .com or .bat extension.
alright thanks. well i was using this little tutorial thing online to help me learn python. if you have the time could you take a look at it and help me out. from what i understand i should be able to type "python" into DOS and it will know to open the python interpreter, how am i supposed to be able to get it to do that then, or am i just completely wrong
